Re: Ȧbhannı

Blech, ok I'm starting over again. Well, I'm keeping most of what I did since the first restart but overhauling it quite a bit. Not so much a restart as simply reorienting myself. But first I'd like some advice from you guys on how most efficiently to make my grammar. The way I've been doing it sinc...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Quick question. Ȧbhannı marks neither person nor number on the verb and I want to keep it that way. These things seem to be, in my experience, almost ubiquitous for very synthesizing natlangs. I'm just curious, how synthesizing can natlangs get while lacking both of these markings?

Re: Ȧbhannı

Okay, this has taken a while, but I'm gonna talk about the last two cases (skipping the vocative for now I guess) which I call the "peripheral" cases (since they don't mark arguments, unlike the "core" cases, and are suffixed after those cases). Possessive The possessive case differs from the other ...

Sorry I haven't been super active recently, I've been quite busy but I should have more free time now. Although, getting so into this project has sort of backfired, since I've started my own IE language on the side haha.

Re: New Weekly Indo European Collablang

On one hand, I agree that they are a bit ridiculous. But at the same time I think it would be cool to have these crazy clusters in the ancient form and see what they become in the daughter languages. I guess that's another thing to vote on.
